Quadrofoil

Post by up0 » Oct 27 2014 3:25pm

I stumbled across this 'toy' a while back and was faszinated about the idea:
Quadrofoil : http://www.quadrofoil.com

I was surprised that there seems to be no thread on the ES forum about this, so I thought I'd start one.
My first thought: "Wow: that thing looks quite efficient, if it can reach 30km/h with only 3.7kW (Torqueedo 2.0 R)

Image
My second thought: "Ouch, thats a loooot of money for a toy!"
I would still love to build sth like that one day.
My favorite candidate for that is still the GF09 Hydrofoil - I better open a new thread for that ;-)
PS: Have just done that - here it is: http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... 39&t=64339

Cheers,
Ulli

Hi Bazaki

How has your own electric outboard adventure proceeded?
Did you solve the hall sensor breakdowns at full power?
Efficiency is king!
